U of M Student Association Endorses MN Dream Act

“MSA passed a resolution in support of the Minnesota Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors Act. The resolution also urges the University’s Board of Regents to support the act’s passage in the Minnesota Legislature.

The DREAM Act allows students who attend high school in Minnesota for at least three years to be eligible for in-state tuition, despite not being permanent U.S. residents.

The University has the option of doing this now, but nothing will be required until the act is approved by the federal government, Legislative Affairs Committee chairwoman Alicia Smith said.

“We are taking a good first step,” she said.”
